Working With Fibro

Working With Fibro

How many of us manage to work full time? For those that get financial aid such as DLA/PIP was it hard fighting for it?

You have to answer every question as if it's a bad day .. x 10 .... I have heard so many different outcomes .. the money from pip in my opinion is there for extra costs that you wouldn't have if you were well ... I have to get taxis every where and struggle to keep on top of the house work .. I have had to use all my savings .. so am hoping and praying I get awarded something x

Is it that bad? There are so many people who commit benefit fraud and yet those who really need it, don't get it. I can walk a little but am in pain throughout and afterwards. I guess they don't count that do they. Dreading mine if it comes to it xx

It took about 7 weeks for mine to come .. I can not tell how it went .. I was having a so so day .. I was in tears .. as it's hard sitting there telling someone .. how much ya life has changed in 9 months .. it's like going through the grieving process for my old life all over again .. and all the person in front of you is concerned with how many bus lengths you can walk .. and whether you can use a knife and fork xx
